I know it’s mid-February and we (only?) have another 6 or so weeks for cold weather here in the Philadelphia area, but I’ve been looking at warm, cushy pullovers lately. Simple details, top-down, seamless and with a feminine silhouette.
It’s very likely caused by not having heat in our home for 5 days.
But this morning our house is warm again and the idea of one of these pullovers is still looking like a great idea. So if you’re like me, or if you’re further north and in for a couple month of cold (sorry!) then these might be for you too.
And if not, fall is only 7 months away.
Miranda by Josee Paquin – love the way the pocket melts into the cable pattern.
Sturgeon by Melissa Schaschwary – the deep V and shorter sleeves would also make this a great transitional pullover.
November10 by ANKESTRICK – the overlapping V for the hood makes this one functional and stylish. I do however need to mention the pattern instructions. I bought this pattern and the instructions are not clear – no indication of RS and WS, stitch counts that use different ways to count the stitches (in one place you include the raglan sts, and in another you do not but there’s no indication of that change, and numerous others). I did CO for this project but I might just use the concept of the neckline and do my own top down pullover. It’s a shame because it’s a cute design.
Ease by Alicia Plummer – two neckline options and long ribbed sleeves make this one a go-to all winter.
Such a Winter’s Day by Heidi Kirrmaier – look at that cowl! And the combo of the yarn (Brooklyn Tweed Shelter) and the knit-purl texture makes it stand up beautifully.
Downeast by Alicia Plummer – Another awesome cowl and love the offset cable down the body.
Lawrence by Melissa LaBarre – Yes, another cowl and another Brooklyn Tweed Shelter design. The combo obviously works.
Maija by Mari Muinonen – gorgeous asymmetric cables flowing all the way to the high neckline
Overlynd by Melissa Schascawary – this one hasn’t been released yet so I’m linking to Melissa’s project page. Love the simplicity of the front contrasted with the deep cables on the back.
These are the kinds of pullover I’d reach for every weekend. Now where’s my knitting pixie dust so I can whip one up for tomorrow?
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
